Lautaro Martinez's signing depends on Luis Suarez
There are more and more rumours on Lautaro Martinez, the Inter Milan player who has been linked with a move to the Camp Nou this summer.
And the thing the Argentine has become a priority for Barcelona, who are thinking about the striker's quality and youth. He is just 22 and he could strengthen their attack.
Not only he would be a signing for the present, but also for the future since both Leo Messi and Luis Suarez, both 33, are reaching the back end of their careers.
Suarez's future apparently affects whether Lautaro Martinez joins the Catalan giants. 'Mundo Deportivo' reports that Suarez must leave Barca before Lautaro signs.
The Uruguayan will not accept being on the bench for a season and is even studying an offer he has from the MLS. The same newspaper says that either Suarez will leave this summer or Lautaro will wait a year before joining Barca. Neither player will accept being on the bench.
Despite Luis Suarez's great numbers, 19 goals in 34 matches this term compared to Lautaro's 19 in 45 games, the Uruguayan is 11 yesrs older. The club are also thinking about the future as well as the present and that is why they want Martinez.
